Drawing 101 is designed for beginner artists who have an interest in learning how to draw or sketch — or simply want to improve their skills. It covers the tools you’ll need to draw and also provides plenty of exercises to practice drawing using different techniques and styles. It also covers drawing people, places, and objects.
During this two session workshop you will learn about the tools used to draw, values, shading, textures and how to create them, and incorporate them to draw people, landscapes, animals, flowers and trees. You will also have the opportunity to share your amazing drawing creations in class to receive useful feedback. While you won’t walk away a master artist after you’ve finish the workshop, you will have the knowledge and training you need to continue to draw and bring the scenes you see in your daily life to paper.
This class is geared to adults but teens are welcome to attend. Materials are included, but feel free to bring your own supplies if you like.
